My techno set of brothers were up and at 'em early this morning at BestBuy where there were several HUNDRED early bird shoppers in line eager to take advantage of the super sales only available for the first several hours. When I say early I mean VERY early. Mark decided to get going at 2am to stand in line just to make sure he could get the "bestbuy" of his choice and he wasn't even FIRST at that outrageous hour. It was a nice gesture that they handed out free coffee and doughnuts for those in line. You can look at this way.. you might be losing some sleep but you won't be losing any pounds. ;-)
I headed over to Staples for their 6am opening to pick up some great deals on a 256MB USB memory stick for under $10. I didn't expect a big turnout at Staples but I was amazed that there was still around a hundred people in that line. That is one of the justifications for getting there early before store opening.... you know you will end up standing in shorter lines during checkout. All the specials seem to be goobled up within 15minutes of being on the shelves and tables.
